I hope everyone out there had a spectacular Christmas!  We return for the rest of the week to our Top Cards of 2012 Countdown, and we have two cards today, both Inzektor Monsters.  Inzektor Hornet is Restricted, and instead of Special Summoning, this Inzektor lets you target and destroy.  Another great and useful tactic, even with so much destruction roaming around in this Format.  But I prefer to Special Summon, if I were given the choice.  When equipped to a Monster, that Monster has its Level increased by 3, giving the benefits you see. It also increases that cards attack and defense (by 500 and 200 respectfully) which seems negligible, but is an increase nonetheless.  Now, it can send itself, while equipped to a card, to target and destroy one card on the Field.  Certainly good, but Dragonfly can use his effect (at least potentially) multiple times, while you only get to use this effect once.  That doesn't make this a bad card, just not as playable via its own effect.  (I'm essentially sandwiching these reviews, for those who haven't figured that out, talking about individual and combo strengths, obviously for each other and in the Deck.)
 
Dragonfly is also Restricted, and I consider this to be a better Inzektor than his Hornet counterpart.  Not to say that Hornet is bad by any means, not saying that at all.  Inzektor Dragonfly does a lot of things very well for an Inzektor player.  He increases the Level of a Monster by 3, making Synchro Summoning and high Level XYZ Summoning that much easier.  He very easily can let you Special Summon another Inzektor Monster (aside from himself) when an Equip card that is equipped to itself is sent to the Graveyard.  Also obviously a good thing, and it adds speed to an all ready fast Deck type.  His 1000 attack isn't anything great, but his 1800 defense is solid, and he's Chaos food, being Dark.  Only having one really helps to balance out how crazy fast the Deck is.

We took a good look at one of the top decks in Yu-Gi-Oh last week by reviewing Wind-Up monsters. Today, we will be looking at one of the other top tier decks of 2012 by reviewing its key cards: Inzektor Hornet and Dragonfly. Inzektors made powerful cards like Mirror Force, Torrential Tribute, and Dimensional Prison obsolete. The Meta game was transformed into one that was forced to use chainable traps like Compulsory Evacuation Device, Fiendish Chain, and Enemy Controller.
 
In fact, Inzektor Hornet and Dragonfly were so good, that Konami limited both cards to one in September. Even at one each per deck, the deck is still dominate as both cards can be searched. By using Mystic Tomato, Sangan, or Inzektor Centipede, you can get ether card to the field or in the hand. By using Foolish Burial, you can get Hornet in the graveyard.
 
Inzektor Hornet is the enforcer of the deck, with the ability to destroy any card that is in your way. Inzektor Dragonfly has the ability to swarm the field and help Hornet destroy more cards. A good play with Inzektors is to summon Dragonfly, use its effect to attach Hornet from your hand or graveyard, use Inzektor Giga-Mantis to attach itself to Dragonfly, then pop Giga-Mantis with Hornet to special summon two Inzektor Centipedes from the deck with Dragonfly and special summon another Inzektor from the graveyard with Giga-Mantis. That gives you four Inzektors on the field. Then you use the three Inzektors you just summoned to attach Hornet and use Hornet’s effect to destroy three more of your opponent’s cards and search for at least two more Inzektors from your deck. What was that saying again? Oh yah! One becomes many. Can you say pluses for days?
 
Inzektors are a dominating archetype and are here to stay, and Hornet and Dragonfly are the reasons for its success.
 
Traditional: 4/5
Advanced: 5/5
